You look just like...

You don't look like anybody else, and you don't try to.  You're you.  You've got your look, and it works for you.  But every now and then somebody says "You look just like..." 

When it's somebody you like, it's kind of a compliment.  Someone thought you were just like somebody you look up to.  And you can't help but smile. 

That's what's behind Sunday's first reading (Acts).  After the Resurrection, Peter and the other apostles get serious about following Jesus. 

With the grace of the Holy Spirit, that's exactly what they're doing.  Whether it comes to healing, preaching, or other stuff, when they get treated just like they were Jesus, they know they're doing it right. 

And they can't help but smile. 

More on this tomorrow. Readings for Sunday
